RUSH: I think John Kerry is one of these guys who thinks he's smartest person in the world, and is actually a blithering idiot and doesn't know it. Those are the worst kind. They're also the funniest. They take themselves soooo seriously. They really do. They think they're the cat's meow. They are just the cock of the walk. In truth, people snicker and laugh at 'em behind their back once they finish.
Now, I'll give you an example here. There is a story occurring out there that is not getting much reportage at all. "Amid a swelling international outcry," we're not hearing much about it here, "over the kidnapping of scores of Nigerian schoolgirls by Islamist terrorists..." You haven't seen this story reported in the US? You haven't? I'm shocked. Well, it's all over the international media.
"Amid ... the kidnapping of scores of Nigerian schoolgirls by Islamist terrorists, Secretary of State John Kerry," who served in Vietnam, "at the weekend again pledged US support for efforts to locate and rescue them. 'The kidnapping of hundreds of children by Boko Haram is an unconscionable crime, and we will do everything possible to support the Nigerian government to return these young women to their homes and to hold the perpetrators to justice,' he said..."
(Kerry impression) This is just not how terrorism is done in the Twenty-First Century.
No, he didn't say that, but he may as well have. It's what he says about Putin.
Now, listen to what he said about the Islamists who kidnapped these girls. I'm not making this up. John Kerry on the Islamic terrorists who kidnapped 300 girls -- honest to God, I'm not making this up -- said, quote, "They don't offer anything except violence. They don't offer a health care plan." Really, Mr. Secretary? You mean if the kidnappers had a health care plan, it might mitigate the circumstance some? (interruption)
I am not making it up! (shaking paper) I have it right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers from the Cybercast News Service, and it's in the UK Daily Mail, too. On the Islamic terrorists who kidnapped 300 children: "They don't offer anything except violence. They don't offer a health care plan. They don't offer schools. They don't tell you how to build a nation.
"They don't talk about how they will provide jobs. They just tell people, 'You have to behave the way we tell you to,' and they will punish you if you don't." It sounds like the Democrat National Committee platform, to me, minus the health care. But honest to Pete! He's talking about Islamist terrorist kidnappers, and saying one of the things bad about them is that they don't offer a health care plan to their victims, or to any other terrorists.
Terrorists do not have Obamacare.
So they're really bad people.
And they don't build schools for the girls that they've kidnapped. He doesn't mean... He's talking about for themselves and their own children and all that, but this is how he's seeking to disqualify the terrorists! Here you have Islamists who terrorize and kidnap 300 girls. And John Kerry, in hopes of explaining what rotten scum they are, the first thing he points out is, "They don't offer a health care plan!"
That is condensed idiocy. And they don't build schools? So he's comparing militant Islam terrorists to what, Obama and the compassion of Democrats? "We have a health care plan. Those kidnappers, those terrorists, they don't." So I guess if they had a health care plan, it wouldn't be quite as bad to be kidnapped by them.
RUSH: Remember next time you get kidnapped: Terrorists do not offer health care plans.
